Recap: Miami vs. San Francisco

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Logan Morrison drove in two runs and Mark Buehrle pitched into the eighth inning as the Miami Marlins took a 5-3 win over the San Francisco Giants in the third portion of a four-game set.

Giancarlo Stanton had two doubles and scored twice, while Donovan Solano added two hits and an RBI for the Marlins, who have won the past two games after losing a pair.

Buehrle (5-4) gave up just two runs on eight hits with three strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings to win his fourth straight decision.

"We're playing some good ball and everything is coming together at the same time," said Buehrle. "Hopefully we can keep this rolling into the next month and string a bunch of wins together."

Gregor Blanco had three hits and an RBI for the Giants, who have lost three of four. Madison Bumgarner (5-4) was touched for five runs -- four earned -- on seven hits with two walks and seven strikeouts over six innings.

"He wasn't as sharp today as he usually is," said Giants manager Bruce Bochy about Bumgarner. "It was really just one bad inning, but that's what has hurt us the last couple of days."

Miami got on the board in the second inning as Stanton started the frame with a double and came home later on a Solano single.

The Giants got it back in the third as Blanco's single played Emmanuel Burriss, who had doubled two batters prior, but the Marlins took the lead for good in the bottom of the frame.

With one out and two on, a double steal from Omar Infante and Jose Reyes put both runners in scoring position and Hanley Ramirez singled to left to score Reyes. Morrison then hit a grounder to first that saw the force at second, but the throw back to first by Burriss was wild, allowing two runs to cross the plate for a 4-1 lead.

Morrison doubled in Stanton in the sixth to give the Marlins a four-run lead.

A groundout from Melky Cabrera in the eighth got one back for the Giants and the team loaded the bases with one out in the ninth off of Heath Bell. Randy Choate, though, came on and got the next two outs. He allowed a run to score on a Nate Schierholtz sacrifice fly, but then struck out Blanco to pick up his first save of the season.

Game Notes

Bumgarner has lost his last three decisions and fell to 0-2 in three starts against the Marlins...Buehrle improved to 2-1 in three games against the Giants...Miami has won five of six against San Fran this season...The Giants batted just 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position and left seven on base.
